I work on the train using a mac tethered to my 3G mobile. Connectivity drops out sometimes, but not enough to stop me from working.
Am thinking about switching phones, but before I do, I'd like to measure the "connectivity" of this current phone. Am looking for a piece of software that could send periodic pings over time (say an hour), and report back on the quality of the service. e.g. number of pings sent, number of failed pings, ping travel time over time etc.
Maybe I could run a ping, redirect into a file, and process using excel or something, but I was after something that could do that for me.
